Saudi Arabia has received the first two of nine S-434TM helicopters from Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation, inaugurating the Kingdom’s first helicopter fleet.

The delivery of S-434 helicopters accompanies a complete logistical support package, including spare parts, special tools, and training for pilots and mechanics.

The S-434 helicopter is the latest variant of the S-333TM helicopter, which undertakes missions including law enforcement patrol, military flight training, power line patrol and light utility operations.

The single-turbine helicopter features enhanced visibility, superior flight handling characteristics, and exceptional safety and crashworthiness with ease of maintenance and reliability.

Both the helicopters were manufactured at Sikorsky Global Helicopters light helicopter division in Horseheads, New York.
